Cancer Therapy & CUY21
Electroporative Gene Delivery into Tumours using the CUY21 Electroporation System
The CUY21 EDIT and CUY21 SC electroporator range has been used to perform electro-chemotherapy on human skin cancer as a clinical test.Â Kindly note the article: â€˜Electrochemotherapy for digital chondrosarcomaâ€™. In this article, bleomycine is introduced into the tumor by electroporation.
The CUY21 electroporation system has also been used to perform electroporation on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).Â Kindly note the paper titled: â€˜Electroporation-mediated Interleukin-12 Gene Therapy for Hepatocellular carcinoma in Mice Models‘.Â In this paper, genes which express IL-12Â are transfected into HCC and the growth of HCC is prohibited.Â In this paper, while a CUY560-5 electrode is used, we would, however, recommend the CUY560-5-0.3 electrode.
